Everyone’s a critic, or so they say. But some actually take it up as a profession, and not just in London or New York, but even in this part of the world. Weng Choy is the president of the Singapore Section of the International Association of Art Critics. He’s been writing art criticism for a quarter of a century. He’s also taught as a visiting lecturer at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and the School of the Art Institute Chicago, and served as the Artistic Co-Director of The Substation arts centre. These days he does consultation work for ILHAM Gallery, and A+ Works of Art, both in Kuala Lumpur, as well as the National Gallery Singapore and NTU CCA Singapore.
